O God, whom I praise, do not remain silent, for wicked and deceitful men have opened their mouths against me; they have spoken against me with lying tongues.
David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.
Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.
Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name's sake.
Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil, to take part in wicked deeds with men who are evildoers; let me not eat of their delicacies.
Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.
I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.
Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits — who forgives all our sins and heals all our diseases...
Arise, LORD! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless.
